SUNNYVALE, California ‒ November 21, 2018 — Druva, Inc., the leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced it has been recognized in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America. Druva is the only 2018 winner from the data management and protection industry and this recognition further highlights the increasing adoption of Druva’s Data Management-as-a-Service solution, which enables organizations to better manage their increasing volumes of data across data centers, endpoints, and cloud environments.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for Druva as modern enterprises embrace the cloud to drive digital transformation,” said Jaspreet Singh, founder, and CEO, Druva. “Our focus on building an AWS-native platform, combined with key go to market partnerships, innovation and excellence have helped fuel our growth and are a testament to what differentiates Druva in a competitive market. With our recent executive hires, product strategy and more than 4,000 customers worldwide, we are focused and confident in continuing this strong growth and success.”
“Software, which accounts for nearly two of every three companies on the list, continues to produce the most exciting technologies of the 21st century, including innovations in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, and robotics,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for the technology, media and telecommunications industry, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “This year’s ranking demonstrates what is likely a national phenomenon, where many companies from all parts of America are transforming the way we do business by combining breakthrough research and development, entrepreneurship and rapid growth.”
Earlier this year, Druva launched the Druva Cloud Platform, which provides a single pane for data management and protection across cloud and on-premises data sources — improving data resiliency, visibility and alignment to data governance needs. By providing a common services layer, the Druva Cloud Platform unifies Druva Phoenix, Druva CloudRanger, and Druva inSync so organizations can consistently apply data policies, monitor their data at the global level, recover from site disasters and data loss and better manage the data lifecycle across environments. The platform readily scales to accommodate petabytes of data due to its AWS native architecture and enables customers to take control of their most critical data stored across end-point devices, in the data center, and with SaaS services. Additionally, Druva recently announced through its relationship with AWS, availability on Snowball Edge, which enable organizations to more readily move data to the cloud.
Druva has also added several key executive leaders to its team in the last year, including Mike Palmer as chief product officer, Sherry Lowe as chief marketing officer and Thorsten Freitag as chief revenue officer. Additionally, Sue Bostrom joined Druva’s board of directors in October, while Guy Churchward joined as an advisor to Druva’s executive team in September.
